What an easy pleasant experience! I needed a short term loan and Christa Baker hooked me right up, was able to get the loan processed, approved and a check cut right then! First Franklin, and specifically the Winder location is my go to for hassle free service. This was my third loan with them and thanks to Christa I will keep coming back whenever I need quick friendly service!

I borrowed money to purchase a car & had someone co-sogn with me. I had every payment & paid the note off, for my name to not be on the title. Not to mention when it came time to mail the title they would not answer my calls or call me back to tell me they lost the title. My car was totaled four weeks ago & this has been The most stressful and worst experience I have had to deal with trying to get a settlement from my insurance due to the fact I wasn’t put on a title for a vehicle that I paid off. On A different note the credit bureau shows an open account for a car loan from First Franklin with a balance that I’ve never reported on a car that’s been paid off for over six months now. I will never do business with First Franklin and I hope this helps a lot of people that are reading reviews to determine to do business with them or not.
